About Us


The seed for Hub Cafe was planted at Branched Oak Farm, an organic dairy and creamery located just north of Lincoln, Nebraska.  In 2006, we began making cheese with the milk from Doug’s small herd of Jersey cows.  The dairy and creamery grew, as did the Dittman’s investment in their food community.  Opening Hub Cafe was a natural extension of their farm operation and a way to share the delicious bounty of their local food community with a larger audience.

Our cafe is like our community, warm and open. It is both a place to relax and a place to connect. At Hub Cafe, we seek to bring people together by providing and excellent dining and coffee experience. We strive to provide space for a sense of belonging in our community through the food we serve.

Our approach to food is simple: use the best ingredients that we, as local farmers, have to offer. Sourcing from the farmers in our local food community allows us to serve the freshest, best-tasting produce, dairy products and meats to inspire creative dishes and connect us and our customers to our landscape and the seasons. Above all, we strive to treat our guests and staff alike with care, sharing our mission to transform the bounty of this land into exceptional modern farm fare.

Owned by Branched Oak Farm, we have the tools to give you the best dining experience you can find in town. We have passion for our craft, whether it be a finely brewed coffee or a homemade recipe from our top tier chef. Let us make our passion yours.

At The Hub Café, we provide great farm to fork cuisine with a homestyle attitude – striving to be on the vanguard of the Lincoln culinary scene while keeping it chill. We’ve been listening to you over the last few years, and we will surely make you excited about dining local!
